Nigeria's manufacturing sector stands as a powerhouse within Africa, offering a plethora of investment prospects. Accounting for approximately 10-11.5% of the nation's GDP annually, it plays a pivotal role in driving economic growth. In alignment with the National Development Plan (NDP) spanning from 2021 to 2025, the government aims to bolster infrastructure, stabilize the macroeconomy, and alleviate regulatory constraints to incentivize investment. The NDP targets a substantial increase in the sector's GDP contribution to 13%, alongside a significant boost in financing, aiming to escalate credit allocation to manufacturing activities from N 3.2 trillion to N 6.5 trillion. Additionally, the plan endeavors to enhance the sector's value chain integration by promoting domestic sourcing of manufacturing inputs, with the aim of augmenting export shares from 7.7% to 20%.
